While supporters say the campaign could be critical in keeping fragile startups in business, critics argue it would just amount to a handout to wealthy Wall Street investors, Politico reported.

Occupy Hades's insight:

Why does our government continually give these corporate persons our hard-earned money? Every time working class or middle-class taxpayers need help, the skinflints, cheapskates and misers in Congress drag their feet or turn their backs on us all together. Meanwhile, lobbyists from investment firms slink through the halls of Congress with their hands out. It's not fair, because it's taxpayer money. Our money.

 

So let's call it what it is: a handout. Every time our country is in dire straits, we can't rely on them, so what do these companies, do for our country that justifies giving them another handout? If they know of startups that are so fragile, let those companies pool their own money and finance those startups themselves. It's that simple.
